Russian President Vladimir Putin has banned Russian surgeons from allowing Russian children to undergo gender reassignment surgery.
He stated that the transgender “fad” is a Western-backed ideology designed to corrupt the youth and destroy society, reports Thepeoplesvoice .
Russia's State Duma unanimously approved legislation banning doctors from performing transsexual mutilation operations nationwide, and banning those claiming to be transsexual from adopting children or having legal custody of children.
The legislation is the strongest measure yet against what Russians describe as a Western-backed LGBT ideology that threatens to undermine traditional Christian values in the country.
NationalFile reports : The new legislation unanimously passed by Russia's State Duma will ban doctors from performing transgender mutilation operations and will prevent Russians who claim to be trans from legally changing their gender.
For those who have already done so, the legislation will have their marriage annulled and they will lose the ability to adopt children or gain legal custody of children.
Now that the bill has been passed by the Russian State Duma, the lower house of the Russian legislative system, it is expected to be approved by the Federal Council (the upper house) and signed by Russian President Vladimir Putin, who supports it.
Putin is an outspoken opponent of the Western-backed LGBT agenda as well as links to the Russo-Ukrainian war as a means to undermine Eastern European culture, which is strongly steeped in Orthodox Christianity and traditional values.
“Do we want all this for our country and our children?” Putin asked the Russian people in a 2022 speech denouncing Western-backed degradation. “For us this is all unacceptable, we have a different future, our own future.”
The “colonialist” left-wing world order, Putin predicted, is “doomed to failure.”
To demonstrate that LGBTism is a subversive, colonialist ideology supported by Western powers, several American business and left-wing media outlets have published stories satirizing Russia's ban on transsexual mutilation and comparing it to a genocidal attack on transgender people who are now “fear for their lives”.
“This law is an invitation to kill us all,” claims a hysterical report from The Daily Beast , which quoted a Russian man claiming to be a woman.
“There is only one way to survive – leave the country.”
